Rick Jones is the Executive Director and Founder of Mi Casa for Children and Elderly. In 2000, Rick and his family volunteered for a year as missioners in Central Mexico. When they returned, Rick quit his career as a financial consultant to start Santa Maria Foundation. In less than four years, he expanded the organization from serving one home to serving nine homes in four states in Mexico. Each of these homes cares for needy children or elderly. With the expansion, the Board of Directors renamed the the organization to “Mi Casa for Children and Elderly” to better describe its work.
